Another YouTuber collab?! YES PLEASE! Violet Voss is hitting us with a brand new Eyeshadow Palette in collaboration with Nicole Concilio on Wednesday, 7.12! The palette will be $45 (fairly standard for Violet Voss) and will contain 20 total shades! These shades vary between matte and shimmery. The shimmery shades are NYC (which p.s. is a purple iridescent shade – I know, right?! You would have thought it was straight frosty white but no no, it’s way cooler than that) Zo-zo, Glorious, Nicol, Sagittarius, GiGi, Palm Tree, L.A., Victoria, & Pingy. The matte shades are Bruh, Pizza, Mars, Daisy, Hangry, Blou, Hey Girl, Chawwcolate, Boop-Bop, & Retrograde.
I am a HUGE fan of YouTuber collabs – in fact, most of my collection is made up of YouTuber collars (literally, I’ve got the Kathleen Lights eyeshadow palette & the Kathleen Lights Colourpop lippies, the Shaaanxo eyeshadow palette, the Carli Bybel Deluxe eyeshadow palette, the It’sJudyTime eyeshadow palette, the Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette… the list goes on). Why? Mostly because they get a ton of hype & I’m a sucker but also because I totally love supporting these girls for killing it, period. And I LOVE the products! But for some reason, this one is slightly underwhelming.
The top two rows are primarily those warms, orangey red tones that are super trendy right now but also a bit played out at this point and the rest of the shades are just ones that we’ve seen so many times before. Honestly, most of us probably already have each of these shades in our collection (even though, like I said, NYC is a trippy shifting shade, it’s almost the same as the super white highlight in the Carli Babel Deluxe Edition eyeshadow palette). I also haven’t tried Violet Voss shadows personally yet so I can’t attest to the quality, either. Don’t get me wrong, the palette is totally gorgeous! I’m just not sure how many of us will find a need (or even really a want cause let’s be real, we don’t NEED any more makeup) for this specific color range. That packaging, through, is totally lit (that holographic mirror though!) but we can’t justify $45 for packaging, can we?? If you’re a collector, this might be something you just can’t resist, but otherwise, I’m thinking this might be a pass. What do you think?! I’d love to know!
